Last week I wrote a review of H&R Block At Home to take a look at some of the changes to H&R Block’s do it yourself tax software. In addition to the name change (it used to be known as TaxCut), there are a few other changes, including an enhanced interface, more user friendly terminology and instructions, free audit support, and more. One of the best features is the ability to try it out for free; you will only have to pay for it if you print it or decide to e-file. There are different versions to handle almost any tax situation, and you can give it a free test spin here (only paying if you purchase it): http://www.hrblock.com/.
